There’s a popular saying that goes – Families and Friends that dine together, stay together! I may have found the perfect place to spend your Friday afternoon at 😉
Boulevard Kitchen located at Manzil Downtown Dubai has launched an outstanding Friday family brunch. It is not only curated for the parents or friends that want to have a relaxing afternoon, it is even for the little ones that may just want to take their crayons out and scribble a little bit at a dedicated arts and crafts corner 🙂
Since that is sorted, adults or parents can casually be seated at the enormous and most elegant looking outdoor area with a glass of wine on one hand and maybe a sheesha pipe on the other 😉
This very affordable brunch (cost at the end of the post) has an extensive variety of Middle Eastern delicacies. I kicked off my brunch with some gorgeous henna and then moved on to some freshly squeezed orange juice + cold mezzes! My +1 and I paired our tabbouleh with a scoop of hummus (yes I love it that way!) with some kibbehs at the side. The kibbehs were honestly one of the best I’ve had.
I then moved on to having a shawarma that was cut into half and some amazing grilled items such as their lamb and tiger prawns that were phenomenal.
Coming to their desserts! Although they had a mix of westernised and middle-easterns/arabic sweets, I preferred their arabic sweets way more. My most favourite was their baklava and halawat el jibn! Wow, they are to-die-for!
What I didn’t like?
1. Although their sheesha was amazing, the service to keep changing the coal was awfully slow.
2. If you are seated outside the service tends to be slow. I ordered a green tea and took around 15 minutes to arrive.
3. Since the desserts are placed outdoors, flies tend to be buzzing around.
4. The cakes were tasty but could be better.
